In memory of Leonard Nimoy, who passed away on Friday, I thought I would share with you a simple refashion I did a few months back but hadn't shared on the blog until now. I picked up this awesome, brand new t-shirt for a couple bucks at Goodwill, thinking my husband might wear it. Sadly, he doesn't like to broadcast his nerd-dom as loudly I do, and therefore, he never wore it. So I decided to confiscate it for myself and feminize it.
I grabbed another tee that fits me well and used it as a pattern to cut the body and sleeves down to size.
Then I stitched each sleeve to the body, with right sides together.
Finally I sewed the new side and underarm seams.
And that was that! A simple makeover in memory of the man who gave life to Mr. Spock.
I paired my new tee with black jeans and black leather boots, in keeping with the original Star Trek uniform, plus I added a black long-sleeved tee for an extra layer of warmth. (We got three whole inches of snow this week! It's craziness!) I also threw on some gold bangles to coordinate with the gold on the shirt.
I even wore my Star Trek insignia earrings (via Etsy, no longer available).
